“Cinque Terre Hike with Chris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

This was the highlight of our Florence trip. The hike was both beautiful and challenging. Definitely wear proper hiking attire and be prepared for all weather conditions. Chris was outstanding as a guide and very personal and accommodating. If you are in Florence this is a beautiful area to visit. Don't miss it!

“great fun, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

my wife and i did both the cinque terre trek and the tuscany tour. i highly recommend both.

we went to cinque terre with chris, who did a really great job leading the tour and getting to know everyone on the tour. the website wasn't kidding - there is a LOT of walking on this tour but it's a great experience and the views are incredible.

the tuscany tour with becky was also a lot of fun. definitely more relaxing and you get to see some great sites of tuscany while learning a lot about the regions

overall this was a really great experience. the tours are well-designed, informative, and a great value when you tally up the included meals, transit, and the informative guides. highly recommend both tours to anyone visiting florence

“Our guide (Chris) should make more money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

Ok - in reality I have no idea what he makes. But it CAN'T be enough. This was our 5th excursion in Italy and Chris has been the best guide and led the best tour. He was genuinely concerned for everyone, was engaging and informative.

And the tour was the perfect balance of planned activities and free time. I won't soon forget the incredible views. We'll bring our kids next time!

“Great tours and excellent guides!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

I did both the 'Best of Tuscany Tour' led by Barbara and the 'Cinque Terre' Tour led by Chris and they were excellent. Both guides were enthusiastic, knowledgable and made the day really great. Both tours were long but covered a lot of ground so was well worth devoting the whole day to them. There was a great balance of organised group activity and free time which meant we could do our win thing for a good potion of the day. The lunches in both venues were amazing with excellent food and even better views. For both tours, the guides were happy to spend the whole ride home answering questions, either about the tour or Florence in general. I would definitely recommend.

“Cinque Terre Tour with Walkabout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We signed up for the day tour of Cinque Terre and had an excellent day. The transportation was comfortable, the agenda and timing were great (nice combination of a hiking trail, a train, and a boat), the meal was excellent and we loved our guide---make sure you're with Chris!

Walkabout takes care of all the boring or complicated lostical parts of traveling to Cinque Terre while allowing you to be on your own two feet for the best attractions. The 4K hike from one city to the next cannot be beat.
